    There are tyre busters that were made for the SOE and ones made for the Germans. Not sure if the German ones are captured SOE ones as the Germans did capture a lot of SOE drops and used them against us during the war, especially the No8 AP switch which was used by the Germans in Italy.

    The Germans made their own Tyre Burster. As I recall it was made from bakelite and was only fitted with one detonator opposed to the British made from sheet metal and fitted with one stab detonator and two 5 grains flash detonators. A rather complex design compared to the German version.
